Tree Of Forgiveness

Seit über 13 Jahren das erste original neue Material des mit mehreren Grammy Awards ausgezeichneten Americana-Singer/Songwriters! Als Gäste sind Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell & Amanda Shires zu hören. Federführender Produzent war Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Jamey Johnson, Shooter Jennings, Colter Wall, Zac Brown Band, Lori McKenna, Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell).
Prine begann seine musikalische Laufbahn Ende der 1960er Jahre als Folksänger in Chicago. Prines frühe Alben verschafften ihm Anerkennung in der Szene. 1981 gründete er gemeinsam mit seinem Manager Al Bunetta sein eigenes Label, Oh Boy Records. 1991 wurde The Missing Years eingespielt, sein erfolgreichstes Album, das mehr als 500.000 mal verkauft wurde und Prine einen Grammy einbrachte. 2003 erhielt John Prine den Lifetime Achievement Award der BBC und er wurde in die Nashville Music Hall of Fame aufgenommen. Der Rolling Stone listete Prine 2015 auf Rang 94 der 100 besten Songwriter aller Zeiten.

Highly-anticipated 2018 album from the veteran singer/songwriter. The Tree of Forgiveness is Prine's first collection of new material since 2005's Grammy-winning Fair and Square. Prine teamed with Grammy-winning producer Dave Cobb to record in Nashville's historic Studio A, enlisting friends like Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, and Amanda Shires to sing along. The songs are new, although some had waited to be finished for decades, like a co-write with Phil Spectro called "God Only Knows." Another incomplete song, "I Have Met My Love Today," now celebrates the unexpected spark that leads to lifelong romance - with a dash of youthful innocence. The musical arrangements may be simpler than on past efforts, yet his unique ability to distill complex emotions into everyday language remains fully intact. Rather than going out on a limb, Prine cultivated the themes that have brought international acclaim since the 1970s. For example, he can take a topic like loneliness and make it funny or heartbreaking.
